We use tracking and analysis tools to ensure continuous optimization and user-oriented design of our website. With the help of tracking measures it is also possible for us to statistically record the use of our website by visitors and to further develop our online offer for you with the help of the knowledge gained.

Based on these interests, the use of the tracking and analysis tools described below is justified according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If you have given us your consent to the use of cookies on the basis of a notice ("cookie banner") issued by us on the website, the lawfulness of the use is additionally based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The following description of the tracking and analysis tools also shows the respective processing purposes and the processed data.

8.1. Google Analytics

a. Scope and Purpose of the Processing

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountainview, CA 94043 USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site.

The information generated by these cookies, for example about the time, place and frequency of your use of this website, is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When using Google Analytics, it is not excluded that cookies set by Google Analytics may collect other personal data in addition to the IP address. We would like to point out that Google may transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google will use the information generated by cookies on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged by Google with other data according to its own statements.

You can generally prevent cookies from being saved by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

To prevent information about your use of the website from being collected by Google Analytics and transmitted to Google Analytics, you can download and install a plug-in for your browser under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This plug-in prevents information about your visit to the website from being transmitted to Google Analytics. This plug-in does not prevent any other analysis.

Please note that you cannot use the browser plug-in described above when visiting our website via the browser of a mobile device (smartphone or tablet). By clicking on this link, an opt-out cookie is placed in your browser. This prevents information about your visit to the website from being transmitted to Google Analytics. Please note that the opt-out cookie is only valid for this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in the browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted. To further prevent the collection by Google Analytics, you have to click the link again. The use of the opt-out cookie is also possible as an alternative to the above plug-in when using the browser on your computer.

To ensure the best possible protection of your personal data, Google Analytics has been extended on this website by the code "anonymizeIp". This code has the effect that the last 8 bits of the IP addresses are deleted and your IP address is thus recorded anonymously (so-called IP masking). As a matter of principle, Google shortens your IP address even before the transmission within member states of the European Union or in other Member States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus makes it anonymous. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

In the course of using Google Analytics, personal data may be transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA, in particular to the USA. In order to be able to ensure adequate protection of your personal data in the event that personal data is transferred to such so-called third countries, we have concluded so-called EU-US standard contractual clauses with Google. By the European Court of Justice, the USA is assessed as a country with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards. Due to the lack of an adequacy decision and without appropriate safeguards, there is in particular the risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and for monitoring purposes, possibly also without any legal remedy. Furthermore, we are in constant exchange with Google to ensure the protection of your personal data with additional measures as may be necessary.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

For more information, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or https://policies.google.com/  (general information on Google Analytics and data protection).

b. Legal Basis

The legal basis for the use is your explicit consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent for the future at any time by deactivating the cookies in your browser settings.

c. Data Deletion and Storage Time

The storage period of the data in Google Analytics is set at 14 months. The cookies set by Google Analytics are valid for up to 2 years.

 

8.2. Google AdWords

a. Scope and Purpose of the Processing

We use the Google AdWords technology, especially conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkways, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. If you click on a Google ad, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your computer. The cookies are valid for 30 days and are not for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can also detect that you clicked on a particular ad and were redirected to that page. Google AdWords customers each receive a different cookie. This prohibits to track cookies by the websites of AdWords customers.

The data collected using the conversion cookie are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Customers will see the number of users who clicked on their ad and were then redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify themselves.

If you do not want to participate in conversion tracking, you can prevent this by using a corresponding setting in your browser, for example in the form that a cookie installation is generally prevented. You can also turn off cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block only cookies from the web address “googleadservices.com”.

In the course of using Google AdWords, personal data may be transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA, in particular to the USA. In order to be able to ensure adequate protection of your personal data in the event that personal data is transferred to such so-called third countries, we have concluded so-called EU-US standard contractual clauses with Google. By the European Court of Justice, the USA is assessed as a country with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards. Due to the lack of an adequacy decision and without appropriate safeguards, there is in particular the risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and for monitoring purposes, possibly also without any legal remedy. Furthermore, we are in constant exchange with Google to ensure the protection of your personal data with additional measures as may be necessary.

b. Legal Basis

8.3. Google Data Studio

a. Scope and Purpose of the Processing

We use an additional data management tool called Google Data Studio to visually create custom reports and interactive dynamic dashboards for our users. We use data from Google Analytics and other interfaces to data sources (such as Google AdWords, Google Tables, YouTube Analytics). The web tool does not require a local application and can be started via the web. Access is via a browser, the data sources are connected directly via Google Data Studio. Further information on using Google Data Studio can be found at: https://support.google.com/datastudio/answer/6283323?hl=en

8.4. Facebook Custom Audiences (pixel method)

a. Scope and Purpose of the Processing

Within our internet presence, we use the "Facebook pixel" of, Facebook Inc. 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). This allows us to track the behaviour of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This process is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help optimize advertising efforts.

The information we collect is anonymous to us, so it does not allow us to identify users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that it can be linked to the respective user profile and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Guidelines. You can enable Facebook and its affiliates to serve ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. In order to generally oppose the use of cookies on your computer, you can set your Internet browser so that cookies can no longer be stored on your computer in the future or cookies that have already been stored are deleted.

a. Scope and Purpose of the Processing

Within our internet presence, we use the "Custom Audiences" service of, LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA („LinkedIn“). This allows us to track the behaviour of users after they have seen or clicked on a LinkedIn ad. This process is used to evaluate the effectiveness of our LinkedIn ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help optimize advertising efforts.

9. Social Plugins

9.1. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn und Google+

Our websites contain social plugins of the social networks „Facebook“ (Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA), „Twitter“ (Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA), „YouTube“ (YouTube, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA), „LinkedIn“ (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA) und „Google+“ (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA). It is possible that via these plugins personal data about the visitors of the website are collected, transmitted to the respective service and linked to the respective service of the visitor. aixigo AG itself does not collect any personal data via the social plug-ins and their use.

To prevent data from being transferred to service providers in the USA without the user's knowledge, we have used passive social media buttons or the so-called shariff solution on our website. This means that the respective social plugins on the website are initially only integrated as graphics. These graphics contain a link to the website of the corresponding provider of the plugin. Only when you click on one of the graphics will you be redirected to the service of the respective provider. This solution ensures that personal data is not automatically forwarded to the providers of the respective social plugins when you visit our website. If you click on one of the graphics of the social plugins, data can be transferred to the respective service provider and stored there. If you do not click on any of the graphics, there will be no data transfer between you and the respective provider of the social plugin.

Further information about the shariff solution can be found on the following website: www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-c-t-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103.html 

After clicking on a social plugin, the respective service provider receives the information that you have visited the corresponding page of our online service. Please note that you do not have to have a user account with the service in question, nor are you already logged in there. However, if you already have an account with the relevant service provider and are already logged into that account while visiting our website, the data collected by the social plugin will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile by the service provider, you must log out of your user account before clicking on one of the social plugins.

Please note that aixigo AG has no influence on whether and to what extent the respective service providers collect personal data. We are not aware of the scope, purpose or storage periods of the respective data collection.

However, we would like to point out that it must be assumed that at least the IP address and device-related information are used and recorded via social plug-ins. It is also possible that the respective service providers use cookies.

In the course of using these plugins, personal data may be transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA, in particular to the USA. In order to be able to ensure adequate protection of your personal data in the event that personal data is transferred to such so-called third countries, we have concluded so-called EU-US standard contractual clauses with the service providers. By the European Court of Justice, the USA is assessed as a country with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards. Due to the lack of an adequacy decision and without appropriate safeguards, there is in particular the risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and for monitoring purposes, possibly also without any legal remedy. Furthermore, we are in constant exchange with the service providers to ensure the protection of your personal data with additional measures as may be necessary.

For the scope and purpose of data collection by the respective service as well as the further processing and use of your data there, please refer to the data protection information directly from the website of the respective service. There you will also find further information about your corresponding data protection rights and setting options to protect your privacy.

13. Data Security and Security Measure

We are committed to protecting your privacy and treating your personal information confidentially. In order to avoid any manipulation, loss or misuse of your data stored by us, we take extensive technical and organisational security measures that are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress. This includes, among other things, the use of recognized encryption methods (SSL or TLS).

However, we would like to point out that due to the structure of the internet, it is possible that the rules of data protection and the above mentioned security measures may not be observed by other persons or institutions for which we are not responsible. In particular, unencrypted data - e.g. if this is done by e-mail - can be read by third parties. We have no technical influence on this. It is the responsibility of the user to protect the data provided by him against misuse by encryption or in any other way.
